Raffey once again stood in front of the camera to shoot an editorial for the March issue of V Magazine!

The magazine issue is available on newsstands now and you can also order your copy online here. Luckily for us, they have also published the article online. You can read an excerpt of it below.

Like most 16-year-olds, Raffey Cassidy has just returned home from school, and is starting on her homework. Unlike most 16-year-olds, today that includes an interview—this very one—to promote her latest project: psychological horror film The Killing of a Sacred Deer, co-starring Nicole Kidman, Colin Farrell, and Alicia Silverstone, and directed by Yorgos Lanthimos, known for 2015’s The Lobster. “I have a really normal life, to be honest,” the actress swears over the phone from her family home in Manchester. Of course, “normal” is relative and, for Cassidy, shuffling between sets and school halls is exactly that.

As the youngest of five children, Cassidy grew up watching her siblings, 24-year-old Grace and 22-year-old Finney, navigate acting from an early age. “Grace was first and then when Finney started I remember seeing how much fun they had with acting,” remembers Cassidy, whose acting chops were first discovered when she accompanied her brother to one of his auditions. That eventually led to roles in 2012’s Snow White and the Huntsman and 2015’s Tomorrowland, which she refers to as “the first big thing I’ve ever done.” It was beneficial that, throughout the process, she could take cues from veteran George Clooney. “Through observing him, it was helpful to see the way he not only acts but the way he behaves on set,” she recalls. “The way he treats everyone with respect was something that will stay with me forever.” […]

I have finally gotten around to upload screencaptures from the film “The Killing of a Sacred Deer“! Raffey plays 14-year-old Kim, the on-screen daughter of Nicole Kidman and Colin Farrell. I don’t want to give too much away, but if you like psychological thrillers and have not seen it yet I strongly suggest that you should watch it. Luckily, the film is available for download on both Amazon and iTunes. Raffey’s performance was simply phenomenal and very different from her other projects, so it was refreshing to see her in a ‘new’ genre! I have added 150+ high quality screencaptures for you to view to our gallery.

Raffey recently shot a new editorial for Interview Magazine which was published online. Raffey is dubbed as ‘the next British breakout star’ and praised for her work alongside Nicole Kidman and Colin Farrell! In the article, Raffey also reveals her strange audition process for “The Killing of a Sacred Deer” and talks about wanting to study fashion at university after school. You can read an excerpt below, the full article is available on Interview’s website.

It takes a strong actor to hold their own on screen alongside heavyweights like Nicole Kidman and Colin Farrell. Yet in The Killing of a Sacred Deer by Greek director Yorgos Lanthimos, 15-year-old Raffey Cassidy turns it up to 11 as the coquettish daughter of a reckless surgeon. Born into a creative family that includes a father who lectures on acting and several siblings who also work in the entertainment industry, it was only a matter of time before a young Raffey signed up to the family biz. Her entry into film was sheer luck. Her older brother was auditioning for a role on a BBC drama and “I just happened to be there,” Cassidy recalls over the phone. “The [casting agency] needed a girl and it just snowballed from there.”

Cassidy traded up from bit parts on TV to Tim Burton’s remake of Dark Shadows [2012] age 9, playing a young Eva Green. It wasn’t until her role in Tomorrowland [2015] that her talents came to shine in a starring role as a wise android named Athena. The two years between Tomorrowland and The Killing of A Sacred Deer bore witness to astonishing growth that saw her pegged as the next Carey Mulligan. Though her quick rise brought her to dizzying new heights, it was getting the part of Kim Murphy in Sacred Deer which left her feeling faint. “In London, I did an audition with Yorgos [Lanthimos], which was cool because I had to do weird things like speaking as fast as I can and when I needed to breathe, I had to faint,” she says. Lanthimos, impressed at her fainting skills, cast her as Murphy. “A week later I found out that I got the part.” […]
